  • what happens to ram...

    What happens to ram when it gets hot? I know it can cause it to "burn up" or ruin it, but I am talking about the symptoms and warning signs that indicate that the ram is getting too hot.

    Memory errors (BSODs with 0x30940293 error messages), System crashes and reboots on it's own, it fails to POST, etc. A whole range of things could happen when your RAM overheats. Of course, the only time I've read or seen RAM overheat is when someone was OCing the crap out of it trying to push his hardware to its limit. In 95% of cases, your RAM will never get hot enough for it to overheat.

      Now, consider laptops... Also, if it gets too hot, can the computer slow down in speed?

        RAM won't slow down, that happens when the processor gets to hot. Some laptops BIOS's will "de-clock" a processor then to prevent overheating. Check for dust-clogged air intakes and heatpipes.

          Ya, I do need to clean the thing... Have to do that after I get my replacement, which is soon.

            Having used a laptop for gaming and for schoolwork in my first year of university, I would also highly recommend getting a laptop cooler, very useful if you game a lot :D
